Nobody is liable for acts of god, because they never happen.

May be they ask God that He would help them to be strong and to play to the best of their abilities?

Sounds very fair to me.

That's why they practice, train, and exercise. No God. No magic help. Sure many of the athletes still pray, but if prayer worked why bother with training?

Yes Alla, I'm sure that people do pray for that. That is not what this is about. This is specific. Do you believe that your god can intercede on your behalf? If not, do you acknowledge that religious leaders have made claims of intercessory prayer?

So if they claim that this is true as many believe it is, then it means that their god can change the outcome of a situation (including a sports game) 26% of Americans believe that God chooses who wins sports games.

So if intercessory prayer works, and somebody can pray to get the favor of a god, how does that not give that person or team an advantage? This is why it should be banned. If it is banned, can someone still pray and get an advantage without getting caught? Probably. Can someone use steroids and gain an advantage without getting caught? Many have, but it is still banned.

Games should not be decided by any one person or team having an unfair advantage over another team.

Remember, just because you want something to be true, doesn't make it true. Yes, even if you have faith.
